I just dig a 6 foot trench.

Electric has to come out and see the wire in the conduit before I can bury it. The rest no one seems to care about.
6 feet, wow! you just floored me.

I agree, but hey, they write the rules.

What is really ironic is that the county only requires electricity to be 18 inches.

Water has to be at least 3 feet below due to the front line at 18-20 inches.
